Somehow, I do not get ANY of Steve's e-mails to the aprssig via my 
e-mail feed.  I see them in the aprssig archive list, but never receive 
the actual e-mail.  And I don't use gmail either.

PS.  Lately, I've just been reading the aprssig messages from the 
February archive list so I don't miss any!

The two I see that have some chance of being carried out in the short term are Hessu's plan to github tocalls, and KD9PDP's proposal to handle a rewrite. I've commented on the former already. If a group forms he will fold it into that.
>     As to KD9PDP's proposal, someone needs to do it, and no one else is stepping forward. The 1.1 errata were well vetted. As Scott points out, 1.2 is a completely different thing, and I do not think anything from there should be added to a definitive document without community discussion and approval.

Some have complained about it being US centric. I do not care what country it is based in, if someone else wants to organize it based in another county great, step forward so we can discuss. Otherwise, let it get organized where those willing to put in the work are located.
